Slightly morbid and never really promises to deliver more than the basic story and subject matter which is at best elementary and predictable for the most part.However, it delivers more than one or two different emotions and actually manages to create a suspenseful mood towards the end. though there were corny moments none of them could be attributed to less than jake acting. Mark Wahlberg was fucking awesome as usual . AVery believable and sympathetic character.Loved him. in spite of the forgone conclusion of the film it is most definitely worth a look or maybe even two. I would recommend with the stipulation that you are watching it online for free. my opinion might be as favorable as it is only because i did not shell out 15 bucks at a movie theater to watch. idk . Any way this is a link to a hi def streaming /avail. for download copy of "THE LOVELY BONES "starring Mark Wahlberg, Rachel Weisz, Susan Sarandon.
